Part one of the Propane Nightmares Zombie Series
(Planned only, a couple of levels have been started. Name is not definite)
Year 2020, week twelve of the infection. This started in the small city, Olysmia. Based in the UK, it was built for the 2012 Olympics.
It all began with a small leak in the sewers, slowly the waste piling higher and higher. The citizens of this Olympic Training town began to catch a plague like disease, killing most of them off. The first few bodies were kept completely hidden in an old, army base, to avoid any attention. The base was infested with rats, a few of the rats were starving, and began eating small parts of the bodies, they caught the disease. The government were unaware of this, and just burned the bodies, not stopping to think about the rats, then decided to leave it alone. But after the illness continued to grow, they began to keep them in quarantine, searching for a cure. One scientist came close, injecting the solution he had created into one of the willing patients. This caused the patient to go mad, have a thirst for blood. After this, they decided it was a lost cause. The government had the infected killed secretly, saying they had been taken off shore to an island to test on. Patient Zero, the original Zombie died after six days of being injected with the 'cure', and he was buried. Shortly after being buried, his skin began to crack slightly, his eyes turned blood red in their closed sockets, and he awoke in a rage. He beat the coffin, however, due to him being underground, only managed to crack the wood. He died soon after hitting his head against the wood, causing a large gash. The blood seeped from the crack into the soil, a normal worm eating the soil. The worm was eaten by a tiny blackbird, eaten by a rat. This rat lived in the sewers. It was also in the family of one of the rats infected with the 'plague' from before. The two illnesses combined, causing slight mutation and a crazed blood lust. This then spread after the rat biting one person, the population of England being taken over fast. A few who were evacuated were what were called 'slow turners', meaning after being bitten, they could live for months fine, then one day, they would turn. This caused the illness to spread, leaving no more than fifty thousand alive on the earth.
Unknown to most, the zombies are mutating further, yes, becoming slower, but much, much stronger... (NOTE: Mutating from 'whorde' style zombies like in 28 Weeks Later and Left4Dead, to the things like the shrouding, classic style zombies and the 'special infected' on Left4Dead. This part of the story MAY be canceled, depending on how many people like the idea)
You must escape from the city, after being barricaded in the metro style theatre for the first couple of weeks of the world wide infection. After the radios went dead, you decide to escape, having searched the theatre many times. You are lucky, as only few zombies are left in the theatre, most of them having left after there was no one left to eat. Clear out the building, and you can either search for guns, or go straight out of the Theatre fire exit. After that, your journey is unknown...
The game is in very early development, the pictures are low quality, but bearable. They are snap shots from the theatre room, before any zombies were placed.
